The HyperX Alloy Origins Core is an ultra-compact, sturdy tenkeyless keyboard featuring custom HyperX mechanical switches designed to give gamers the best blend of style, performance, and reliability. These key switches have exposed LEDs for stunning lighting with an actuation force and travel distance elegantly balanced for responsiveness and accuracy. Alloy Origins Core is built with a full aluminum body so it stays rigid and stable when keystrokes are flying, and also features keyboard feet that let you choose from three different tilt levels. Its compact TKL design frees up space for mouse movement in desktop setups where space is at a premium, and it also features a detachable USB-C cable for supreme portability. Customize your lighting, craft macros, and adjust Game Mode with HyperX NGENUITY Software. This powerful, yet easy-to-use program lets you set per-key lighting, layer dazzling lighting effects, and add scores of other personalized touches to your NGENUITY-compatible products.

HyperX mechanical switches

The key switches are custom-designed to be a balance of responsiveness and accuracy, featuring a short travel time and low actuation force. They’re also reliable, rated for 80 million keypresses with no loss of quality.

Full aircraft-grade aluminum body

The aluminum casing keeps the keyboard structurally sound and stable when the action gets intense and the game hangs in the balance; battle after battle, night after night.

Ultra-compact TKL design with detachable USB-C cable

The sleek tenkeyless form factor gives you more space for rapid mouse movements, especially in desktop setups that are too tight for a full-sized keyboard. It also has a detachable cable so it’s easy to take on the go.

RGB backlit keys with radiant lighting effects

HyperX mechanical switches feature an exposed LED for brighter, more luminous RGB lighting.

Advanced customization with HyperX NGENUITY Software

Customize Game Mode, take greater control over lighting effects, and set up your own macros.

Three adjustable keyboard tilt angles

Adjust the two-step keyboard feet for three different angle settings (3°, 7°, or 11°), whichever makes your wrists the most comfortable.

Onboard memory for three profiles

Create your own custom-designed lightshows, save them directly to the keyboard, and take them with you on the go.

Game Mode, 100% anti-ghosting, and N-key rollover

Ensure that all your keypresses register and that you’re not accidentally taking yourself out of the game in key moments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Woody23 from Not a Gamer. Just need a good solid backlit keyboard Plagued by Microsoft ergometric keyboards wireless that caused my HP laptop computer to add multiple z, t or commas or delete text unendingly I chose to abandon MS KB and buy the HyperX with a USB cable. No longer have problems and can type in low light. chose the one with red keys - easy action - seems very solid. Small enough that I can put in my back pack and take it to work too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bwagner23 from Great keyboard and cheaper than competitors. Seems very well made and types better than my corsair k95 platinum, which is a much more expensive keyboard. Definitely a HyperX fan now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EsteBandido from Tactile switches / TKL / only minor nitpick Tactile switches / aqua wins over all switches. Great feedback from typing. Casual games so I can't give that deep of a review. My only nitpick would be to have dedicated media buttons like my previous keyboard (which was TKL red switches)
